Group 2 would get 4/5 of a pizza.

Group 3 would get 5/6 of a pizza.

Group 4 would get 7/8 of a pizza.

*Which group gets the largest portion of pizza?

The group who got the largest portion of the pizza was the group 1, as you can see the illustration in my voicethread the group has the largest portion while the 4th group got the smallest portion because the many you are the smaller portion you could get.
